For thirty years, the company has shown talent, tenacity, know-how and above all inexhaustible enthusiasm, expertly combining metal with wood, leather and fabrics to create timeless pieces of furniture with clean fluid lines. The company’s story begins in the 1980s, when founders the Marcato brothers decided to go into business on their own. Their initial idea developed rapidly and Lapalma was established soon after, showing from the outset a preference for natural, recyclable materials. Following investments in machinery, Lapalma took advantage of the availability of new materials to develop a wide range of products for the contract market, which quickly demonstrated the brand’s appeal, attracting buyers on major projects worldwide for hotels, shops, museums and airports.
Today, Lapalma looks towards the future with the same unchanged enthusiasm. The genuine Italian nature of its products is stronger than ever, with its emphasis on craftsmanship and designs that appeal to the senses - the cornerstones of Italian design and production. It has brought in new fabrics, padding, leathers, and colour palettes and developed variations on individual product lines, building a diversified portfolio to accommodate products which are suited to the contract market, but can also cross over into other areas such as the home, outdoor and light office segments. Forward-thinking and true to its convictions, Lapalma is ready to take on new challenges, opportunities and markets.
